I have a bunch of keyframes in a 30 second clip in the primary storyline. If I disable "v" a connected clip, whether audio or video these keyframes get completely f&*cked up. Only way out is Apple Z. But it's especially annoying as I wanted to try a different audio track so disabled existing music so as to be able to hear it and the crop move I have applied became very weird and not at al what I had applied. Or if I want to see it through without some titles.
Has anybody else experienced anything like this or have I done something stupid?
Based on what you've said, it definitely sounds like a bug. Disabling one clip should not have any affect on another clip. Can you reproduce 100 percent of the time? Can you reproduce in another project? Make sure to fill out a bug report (via feedback menu).
Have you tried the solo shortcut instead of using disable? It might work around the bug.
Solo no use as I have five layers and wish to disable just one. I want to see four of the five play with just one disabled. All are connected to still image in primary storyline which has keyframes (Rostrum style moves).
Here you have my project in three stages. As it is. Audio disabled (immediate confusion) and audio reenabled but it could be any connected clip not just audio.
See audio disabled then enabled and what happens to image on primary storyline.
The move I have key-framed is a simple pull back from big close up to wide and the mage you see is not my initial close up which is head and shoulders and then pulls back to the full frame. just two keyframes actually first and last. I have also resized the mage slightly to make it about 10 % bigger to fit the frame.
What's the format of the still? I wonder if its not really compatible but FCPX is trying to use it. CMYK or something?
Also, Have you tried replacing the still with another shot and seeing if the same bug persists? And in your pics you didn't show the video animation keyframes. Do you see the phyiscal keyframes moving/changing position when you go through the steps?
Upon further investigation: With the still image (Jpeg) in Primary storyline selecting "fill" in spatial conform just zooms the image in a bit but by selecting "none" it replicates 100 % what happens when I disable and re-enable a connected clip.
